City Tower One brings a beacon of understated elegance to Dubai’s skyline
On the west side of Dubai’s exhilarating Sheikh Zayed Road, City Tower One will be home to luxury urban living and sophisticated style. From a uniquely large building site that connects Sheikh Zayed Road to Al Badaa Road along Eleventh Street, we had the opportunity to create a distinctive residential experience that abounds with unmatched amenities and modern sensibility.
“We viewed the design as part of a master plan that enhances the urban, architectural, and landscape experience along the west side of the tower and creates an uplifting entry for residents and visitors.” — Mark R. Shoemaker, AIA
A dramatic setting that celebrates arrivals and departures
A grand-scale porte cochere sets the tone for the residential experience beyond its doors — an expansive and light-filled space that evokes ease, balance, and grandeur. Defined by mashrabiya-inspired aluminum screens that dapple and modulate light, this centrally located vehicular drop-off and pick-up links the residential tower to the car park and amenity deck.
The extensive rooftop amenity deck is an oasis for leisure and wellness
Atop the car park, the rooftop deck stretches wide with unparalleled amenities, including an infinity pool and tennis court. Residents can relax and enjoy lush green space with striking views of the gulf and the Burj Khalifa, a full-service fitness facility, yoga studio, a residential lounge, and a pool and recreation area for younger family members.
“City Tower One will be an elegant, contemporary residential tower on Sheikh Zayed Road that embodies luxury and sophistication in a quiet, restrained way.” — Darin C. Cook, AIA
